on al-jazeera dot com that just that a church a trump a mall debt a legacy of slavery in the usa and the things we keep first stop the church of trouble produced for fault lines and this film correspondent josh rushing and producer and a day go inside america's religious right to explore its grassroots strategies and the powerful institutions fueling its resurgence take a look in the united states the religious right is on the we were always hunting for the guy who would take our script and read it they're going to take control of one of the parks and they've effectively done that full lines examines the trumpet ministration special relationship with the religious right what do you get out of the presidency and what evangelical support means for the future of the country. when i set my foot on correspondent just rushing and in new york for. you both.
1:32 pm
so good to have you here i want to start on my laptop with two tweets a tiny little history lesson from a journalist tom craton me he writes historically evangelicals were the theological conservatives who smiled engage the culture and were happy to share their faith but now and probably for a long time to come evangelical communicates a political fact more than a religious identity the fact that eighty one percent of white evangelicals voted for donald trump so and i will give this one to you there is a little to change in history when did that happen in then why did it inspire you to make this stop. rehab seemed a little eyes ation to the christian right in america since the eighty's that reagan we saw through the ninety's when the anti-abortion movement but i think it was surprising after the twenty sixteen election that so many evangelicals eighty
1:33 pm
percent white evangelicals turned out to for such an unscrupulous candidate and i was one of those americans that was a bit surprised by not. and i think many thought that perhaps these voters for kohn but i try but what we found and we you know began investigating this and looking into it further raised that this is a movement that has had a very. smart strategy for decades there are people who are not reacting to all attacks that are happening around them they have a vision for america and they've been working very strategically at the grassroots and at the federal level to achieve this for years and now they have a ministration that's very dependent on them as they're the ones that brought this administration into office just to learn so much about broad's of the evangelical church in the us despite your interactions with them the way that they talk to who
1:34 pm
you talk to there's a guy called jeff alex i'm going to start a little clip of him but before we do that tell us about him what do we need to know before we see that jeff owens a hardware store in the rule part of kentucky just nor tennessee just north of knoxville and he's fairly well known now for putting a sign of the store the says no gays allowed and he says that he can legally do that because of the supreme court decision regarding the baker in colorado and so we went and when asked if he is around i got a chance to talk to him asking two questions his a little bit of just asking jeff i make some questions to get out just because a man of his players made mistakes doesn't mean his own feet to run this country this country right now has a better shape than it's ever been in my lifetime in your left i mean it is left and it's better than it's ever been. there is no difference between a homeless or a homosexual a child molester and a woman that committed an abortion because she has killed her child and i think all
